some remarks about the agency for ment and development. secretary -- if secretary kerry were to develop this budget request, one fact was front and center. nation's % of the budget, america's defense has never been more vital to our economic prosperity or global leadership. whether in the mideast, ukraine, europe or our own hemisphere, diplomacy is needed now more than ever. investments in diplomacy and development are returned to us in security and jobs. this budget funds the work that is required to sustain long-term investment while regular recognizing the fiscal constraints we face as a nation. details are online, i'll just hit a few highlights here. the overall request is $46.2 billion. the base budget of $40.3 billion is consistent with the f.y. 2014 level this will enable us to carry out our global, dip lo -- ur global diplomatic and other missions, honor our commitments o allies and partners, keep up wur opiece keap -- peacekeeping activities and respond to crises such as the typhoon in the fill peeps. it funds key programs in iraq and afghanistan and helps sustain hard-fought
of the midon, the crisis in the ukraine has changed its face. it hasn't dissipated. and today secretary kerry was greeted in kiev by ukrainians pleading for the continued support of the united states. and so having been so clear voiced in our support of the ukrainian people thus far since the tproe tests began last november, now is the moment when republicans and democrats should stand united in this congress so years from now when a group assembles in kiev marking the anniversary of this grave crisis they will celebrate ukraine's political sovereignty and economic rebirth with more chance of thanks to the united states. so, in what shape should this support come? first, we need to stand together in the next week to deliver serious financial assistance to ukrainian economy that is weak and is growing weaker as this crisis persists. a $1 billion aid package is a good start, but our real work must happen within the structures of the i.m.f., which can provide the potentially tens of billions of dollars necessary to fully right the ukrainian economic ship. and while ukraine does need to undergo e

that secretary kerry would like and how, the so-called modern view, with the balance of power was a thing of the past and we only saw in the 19th century. that's not how they view the world, and it leads me to play this is something we should be recognizing as well. i leave you with this. the real question is, we will be going through a specific measures about things that should be done here and we will discuss that in response to the question, i believe some of the details for that but i will leave you with two thoughts. the short run to me is not as important as the long run. the long run i think we need to restart rebuilding our strategic position, signal that american retrenchment is over. this will go a long way to signaling to russia and to china and other countries that is long grip and american power is going to be reversed. and the second thing we have to start thinking carefully about is we need to stop thinking of military power as a metaphor for military intervention. we used to understand very well that the deterrent force of military power, today much of that has been lost p

. in other words, this is a back stop to the negotiations that secretary kerry has had and that the president has pointed to. but, amazingly, the obama administration has taken the very bizarre position that the democrats who are supporting this legislation, this backstop legislation that would do nothing to undermine the negotiations between the secretary of state and other nations in the region, the president is now urging democrats to stop supporting this important piece of backstop legislation, even though a commanding majority of the united states senate has indicated their support for it. in fact, the president has gone so far as to promise a veto of this legislation if it reaches his desk. and, of course, it is not true, as the president argues, that this legislation would effectively sabotage the geneva deal. in truth and in fact, what it would do is it would provide, as i said, a backstop but reinforce what the president and secretary kerry are so proud of in terms of what they've already negotiated. if iran follows through, then this sanctions legislation would be of little force an

. we are concerned about the middle east peace process. we are concerned that john kerry has been pushed into this. it's a serious issue. stagesnately, at various of his campaign, he was played with either new ukrainian authorities. for instance, the first meeting he had with the new chairman of the rada, their press service reported that he supported the current processes. what it meant onto those circumstances when n -- was not clear. the day before there was the february 21 agreement that was supported by the secretary-general. if the representative was there, you would them to support this agreement which was signed the day before. then we are given the expedition that he did not really say or mean it. what he said was completely different. is treading on very difficult ground. if you are asking again about crimea,ibility of the if the authorities are ok with that, why not? it's not a situation where one can improvise. muchnk we have seen too improvisation rather than sticking to the solid ground of the february 21 agreement. situationere was the at the beginning of the syrian
between u.s. secretary of state john kerry and foreign minister lavrov. given the fertility of the situation on the ground, does the prime minister agreed one important outcome from these talks would be if they lead to direct high level talks between russia and ukraine? >> in order to de-escalate the situation the most important thing that should be arranged is a forum for discussions in which the russians and ukrainians can speak to each other. there have been some contacts between russia ministers and ukrainian ministers. this morning their meetings taking place in paris covering other issues as well but there has been some progress in putting together a contact group, an idea i proposed to the prime minister back in january to start having a group of countries around russia and ukraine to encourage such dialogue to take place. that's the single most important thing that could help to de-escalate the situation. >> mr. speaker, clearly we all up for a good outcome from those talks by the eu also has a crucial role to play. does he agree the eu at the leaders of some of tomo
way beyond the $1 billion which secretary kerry has talked about in his visit. but in order to achieve that, they're going to have to make some significant and maybe unpopular reforms in their economy, in their gas program and the like. it's tricky. to do that runs the risk of a popular backlash against these reforms but without the reforms, there could be no meaningful aid package. we need to stand with ukraine and ukraine needs to stand for the reforms necessary to strengthen their economy. this week i'm working with senators brown, shaheen, wicker, king, collins and warren warner to condemn the russian action in crimea. there's more to be done. senator menendez talked -- the aid and the sanctions that may be necessary. i sincerely hope the sanctions won't be necessary. i hope vladimir putin and the russians understand they cannot show this kind of aggression toward crimea without a cost. but i hope they'll do it soon so that we can see the return of stability to ukraine. ukraine is a critically important country, the second largest country in europe today. it was a major part of the
remains extremely important. i think i secretary clinton, secretary kerry, the president of the training has had on so many occasions that this will not in military. there ought to be some way for reconciliation to be possible. the second principle as well, which is i always felt in the time i had this responsibility, and this kind of diplomacy has got to be backed by force. it isn't necessarily backed by american force but this, idea if you're in gave of reconciliation is another reason to be in favor of a sign to be bsa. another favor for american forces and international forces and it's a very important reason to be in favor of continued support for afghan national security forces it seems to me that taliban is watching very carefully how we work our way through these next few months to decide whether be any pressure on them to make this step toward reconciliation so the effect of the military effort, international and afghan, still is really important third point seems to me on reconciliation as you look back and circling makes you think about it very carefully and watching the film
of a barrel bomb. and this is going on every day in syria. secretary kerry has rightly called these barrel bomb attacks unacceptable and barbaric. the primary architect of these crimes is bashar al-assad, but he has a patron who funds and supports what he does and who has the ability to stop the atrocities. russia is assad's principal support. since the start of the syrian war, russia has shoang it is complicit in these war crimes but it is also capable of stopping them. in the united nations russia has used its veto power and threat of veto on the security council numerous times to block action to help the syrian people. three of these vetoes were used, mr. president, to block basic humanitarian aid. what possible reason could any civilized nation have to denying war victims food and medical supplies? but russia has shown that it can be persuaded or shamed into taking action to try to promote basic safety of syrian citizens. in august, with the threat of u.s. military action to punish the assad regime for use of chemical weapons against its own civilians, russia realized that it could no
obama, secretary of state kerry negotiate with their -- with president hassan rouhani, iran continues to build a nuclear bomb while the administration and our secretary of state talk about our allies in europe about the negotiations with iran, the supreme leader in iran continue to build a nuclear bomb. the reality is the only thing that has brought iran to the negotiating table is sanctions. and only continuing those sanctions will get them to stop building a bomb. the sanctions should be reinstated, and they should not be lifted until, one, iran agrees that they will not build a bomb, and we have an open, verifiable, transparent process to make certain that they're not doing it. now, sanctions take time to work. the sanctions that we applied more than a year ago, particularly the kirk-menendez banking sanctions, have had a real impact on iran's economy. i bring a background as a banker to my work experience, both the work experience i had as a governor for ten years and my work experience here in the senate. and the reality is that the kirk-menendez banking sanctions have been extre

secretary kerry, president of the united states said on so many occasions that war will end militarily, there has to be some political end to this conflict and there ought to be some way to see if reconciliation is possible. but there's a second principle as well which is, i always felt in the time that had this responsibility that this is kind of diplomacy got to be backed by force. . . certainly makes you think about it very carefully and watching the film on women and women's right is what is this reconciliation all about. and that is about an afghanistan that works with the rule of law and that supports the rights and responsibilities of all citizens, but particularly women. on the questions of reconciliation i'm sure they are still high on the administration's agenda but the principles remain very much the same. the second point you asked me to talk about our the elections. he's done a wonderful job on that. two things that are important to me. one is what is the outcome here and it is an election that is seen by most afghans as legitimate and a leader as someone they c
to do their job. >> good morning. from president obama to secretary kerry to republicans and democrats in congress, we're fortunate to have had an exceptional set of leaders of both sides of the aisle who understand the importance of our nation's security and prosperity. by partnering with other nations and to promote democratic societies we help to transform countries to destabilize prosperity -- prosperous nations. we open markets for american businesses, prevent conflict and extremism from reaching our shores and helping our young people build skills in science and technology all for less than 1% of the overall federal budget. this year's president's budget request includes $20.1 billion that usaid manages are partially manages. these critical resources allow us to ed reincarnations cool interest of responding to a pressing national security priorities from the middle east to afghanistan to south sudan. this afternoon, i want to discuss how we are meeting these challenges through a new model of development reflected in this budget. by leveraging public and private partnerships and h
our data would support kerry we had some diagnoses of alzheimer's but we didn't have enough observations really to distinguish those. this is somewhat outside of my area of expertise but my understanding is there is somewhat of a blurring line between many forms of dementia. the majority of dementia is alzheimer's but typically there will be vascular dimension in addition to alzheimer's at the same time. >> should we expect the results of another study from you related to these topics? >> we are working right now. we have an our 01 from nih to look at long-term care and all costs of long-term care in the role of health insurance for long-term care insurance. it's very clear that the costs are highly skewed and we don't have a well-functioning market for that. we have produced one paper on that and we will produce for their papers. >> thank you very much. mr. rogen i appreciate your work for laird he for charity so my comments are dull and boring but it's really an expression of gratitude and i appreciate your efforts to educate and communicate with young people. that's somet
as secretary clinton, secretary kerry, president of the united states said on so many occasions that war will end militarily, there has to be some political end to this conflict and there ought to be some way to see if reconciliation is possible. but there's a second principle as well which is, i always felt in the time that had this responsibility that this is kind of diplomacy got to be backed by force. . .
